This review is from: Ingrid & Isabel Women's Maternity Everyday Bellaband (Apparel)
Even with my maternity jeans having a built-in band, I hated how it hit me mid-stomach and gave me a very visible line right across my middle (I know, I know, in the grand scheme of things, while looking like a beached whale, this was probably the least of my worries). However, I also found that that same built-in band would start to stretch out and my jeans would start feeling like they were falling down and I constantly had to adjust/pull them up. The BellaBand did a great job of keeping my jeans from making me feel like one of those kids walking around with their pants half off.
Postpartum, I used it for a while to help "hold everything in". Somewhat miraculously, I was able to get back into my pre-pregnancy jeans quicker than I had anticipated, but the accompanying muffin-top was brutal - the BellaBand helped smooth things out. As I had had a c-section, wearing this actually made my abdominal muscles feel marginally more supported. Perhaps not as much had I worn a compression wrap, but it felt good to me.
